Conn.-based Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corp. is touting BRO, a new bio-residual oil produced from recycled vegetable grease and animal fat that it is using to power its 50,000-square-foot plant in Danbury this winter. The company is further developing the bio-residual oil on behalf of and in cooperation with Ames, Iowa-based Renewable Energy Group (REGI).

According to REGI, BRO produces up to 135,000 BTUs per gallon, a higher BTU value than coal or wood-fiber material, with approximately 100 to 125 pct more energy per pound than wood chips or pellets and burns cleaner by creating less particulate matter and significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to alternative fuels. BRO also has the lowest carbon intensity of any commercially available liquid fuel.

Commercialization of the product could begin within a couple of years. Preferred notes it would partner with REGI to sell the product and that it previously worked to develop a "liquid wood" burner system for Canadian biocrude producer Ensyn Corp.,

Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corporation is an engineering-based manufacturer of products for commercial, institutional, industrial and nuclear power facilities.
